Here's the poster and postcard design for the second half of 2012's Cleveland Cinema's Late Shift sponsored by Melt Bar & Grilled. This was a follow up to the ad I did for some of the first half of the year's movies that I did for The Lake Erie Monster #1. You can see that one HERE
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of the main feature movies of the 12 Hours of Terror, which is on October 20th, so it was suggested that the header art be from that movie, which was an incredible suggestion! So I drew this one image, based on a screen capture. I like it a lot, got really brushy and raw. It's kind of abstracted but still totally recognizable as what it is. I decided to do something I don't often do and offer this up over at the Shiner Comics Online Store. It's $80, but it's totally worth it. It's the original, there's only one. Suitable for framing! Here's a scan of the art:
Here's a higher rez bigger jpg of the full color version that's on the postcard and the poster:

If you're interested in this Late Shift midnight movies, and you're on the ol' book of faces, you should become a fan of it HERE! You'll be hip to all the news and updates. These movies are all great, but here's a list of highlights:
DARKMAN, I can not wait to see! I haven't seen it since I was a kid and it was new, but I very much remember loving it as a kid. I think I may have also actually had the comic book adaptation that Marvel published. I'm really loking forward to finding out why I loved it so much, or if it even holds up!
ROBOCOP. Duh. No-brainer. It's been a really long time since I've seen this, but I know that it's awesome. I kind of want someone to dress up in a Robocop costume and come to this shit. Again, some of the comics about Robocop are pretty great. I think there's a badass Robocop vs. Terminator comic. Track that down!
TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE. True Story: I've never seen this movie! Looking forward to this one too. I'm really really stoked that there's an animated movie on this list. I hope this isn't an isolated thing, and next round there's another... maybe even some jam like Ralph Bakshi's Wizards or that Fire & Ice fantasy epic thing Frank Frazetta did the art for. I don't know if there's an audience for those though, other than me. Me and a fistful of dudes that wold have to take the break from their current D & D campaign to go see them.
Well, this blog has officially gone off the rails. SO: Go see some movies. Buy yourself a drawing. Stay tuned. More art to come tomorrow!
